The new boys in English Premier League

The English Premier League is said to be the most entertaining and thrilling league in the world with nonstop weekly action, legendary rivalries and even nemesis of big clubs. Clubs resume battle for supremacy, town respect and European slots on 8th of August 2015 and this has caused most of them to get their fingers busy and wallets empty for players to strengthen their teams and rid themselves of leakages that can be exploited by fellow teams and we take a look at a few those new signings.

BASTIAN SCHWEINSTEIGER

The German and Bayern Munich midfield legend joined Manchester United who are looking to solidify their midfield after securing a slot in Europe and seeking to reclaim the league trophy they lost two years ago. He is a very decorated player with both club and country as he won 8 Bundesliga titles,7 DFB Cup titles,2 DFB League Cup, 2 DFL Super Cup, a champions league winner and a world cup winner with Germany and boast of 68 goals for both club and country. The FOOTBALL GOD will be a delight to watch this year with his precise passes and accurate interceptions.

ANDREW DEDE AYEW

Olympic Marseille finally let go off one of their most valuable assets after 7 years of amazing dedication. Dede, a Ghanaian midfielder has joined Swansea city after being chased by numerous English clubs for over a decade and is looking to bring the good goods right on board and start making impact and prove his worth. Swansea narrowly missed out on European action but they have different ideas for this year as they bring in a player with 44 goals in 160 apps under his belt for Marseille. They are poised to continue off from where they left off with this inclusion and move into the European zone with Ayew to deliver the desired passes and goals to thrust them on.

FIRMINO

After multiple speculations linking him to Man U, Chelsea, Arsenal, he decided to actually pen his services for Liverpool to the surprise of the world but the delight of all Liverpool fans. Liverpool have being on a down road for the past 5 years and have found it extremely hard to land hotcake players so this signing has really boosted the team morale and rekindled the hopes and dreams of fans as they hope to return to their once glorious form where they were an indomitable force in the domestic and European leagues. They failed to qualify for champions league where they are 5 times champions and the bitterest saga was the back to back defeats handed them by their eternal rivals Man U. Firmino has a found the back of the net 47 times for Hoffenheim in the Bundesliga and would be looking to do the same as all eyes are on the Nike model to justify why he moved to Liverpool.

YOHAN CABAYE

I have no clue as to how Alan Pardew did it but believe me, it is a reality as Yohan Cabye who left Newcastle to PSG has returned back to work with his former boss who also parted ways with the said club and joined Crystal Palace. Crystal finished last season in 10th position which is very impressive and they look to soar higher with this new inclusion to the likes of Bolasie, Zaha, Jedinak, etc. Yohan is a central midfielder with an amazing sense of pass and the ability to change a game at anytime, this will bolster the attacking options of the team.

The 2015-2016 season of EPL is less than a month away I can’t wait anymore to see great football on display as intense rivalry between folks, coaches, players, and towns are transferred and expressed on the field of play within a period of just 90minutes.
